James Spencer’s Stalham range continues to gain momentum

Award-winning infection control range rolled out by a growing number of NHS trusts

James Spencer & Co's award-winning, quick-to-clean infection control range of Stalham products is continuing to gain rapid momentum in a growing number of NHS trusts across the UK.

Trusts that have already reaped the benefits of using the multi-purpose Stalham - a three-in-one unit that functions as a standalone commode, over-the-toilet mobile sani-chair and shower chair - include Bradford, Sheffield, Newcastle, Sherwood Forest, Tayside and Borders & Medway, with many others expressing ‘serious’ interest.

The Bradford-based healthcare furniture and equipment manufacturer reports that increasingly large volumes have been sold since the Stalham was first introduced only a few years ago.

James Spencer’s chairman, Richard Spencer, said: “The Stalham was originally designed and developed in consultation with healthcare professionals, among them infection control specialists at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, who created a step-by-step dismantling and decontamination guide that is now distributed throughout the trust as an example of best practice.

“The range continues to make an increasing impact across both the NHS and UK care homes sectors and is proving a potent tool in helping to both control and reduce the risk of Healthcare association infections (HCAIs).”

James Spencer’s Stalham was the top-rated platinum medal winner in the Infection Prevention and Control category of the Nursing Times Product Awards.

The judges said: “This product has the potential to make a huge impact on patient care, due to ease of cleaning and the ability to swap individual parts, and it is recyclable at end of product life. It could be used across the whole spectrum of care delivery.”

The Stalham is fully synthetic and constructed from a high-impact plastic material. It does not rust, scratch, bend, dent or peel, is chemical resistant, easy to clean, hygienic and economic.

A video showcasing the range can be accessed through the James Spencer & Co website and is also available on disk. In addition, a James Spencer cross-infection booklet detailing the range can be downloaded direct from the site, or is available in print, with an inbuilt QR reader code.
